1. We have to be our own master. We have to rise above the temptations of lust, greed, and our channels have to be perfectly clean so that the Divine Power can work through us.
2. We have to be able to stay in Thoughtless Awareness. When we see without thought, we become the witness, the Sakshi. When we watch without thought, there is no obstruction for absorbing the knowledge about that thing. Complete absorption takes place, it becomes our knowledge and it manifests joy.
3. Our Gravity must manifest. In this state we become silent and our gravity acts like a magnet. We have to touch that depth inside us which can carry the Divine Power and manifest it. Without saying or doing anything outwardly, our powers manifest. This is how the Divine Power works within us.
4. We have to achieve Self-Esteem through introspection. We have:
- - powers of love
- - powers of compassion
- - powers of grasping things
- - powers of creativity
- - powers of giving realisation
- - powers of salvaging mankind
We have to know that we are Gurus and we have to assume our powers.
5. Reach the state of Silence. In any crisis we have to try and reach that axes of silence which makes us really powerful because we are not only in our own silence but in the silence of the cosmos. In this silence we are in connection with the Divine power which is working out the whole cosmos and this power works through us. This silence is a sign that we are definitely in the Kingdom of god and that God is looking after us.
6. The Guru Principle gives us Balance. A Guru is not ascetic by nature, but he is so detached that he becomes ascetic. Nothing can tempt, nothing can disturb or trouble him, neither food nor money nor power. Nothing can dominate a Guru. Once this balance settles in, we become absolutely fearless because we know that nothing can bring us down because we are above all these things.
7. A Sahaja Guru is a motherly Guru, a sweet Guru. A Sahaja Guru is different from classical Gurus. He has to use his power of love, Compassion and understanding. As we ourselves grew from the normal human level to a higher state in Sahaj Style, in the same way we have to give it to others. No harshness is required; we should have kindness, sweetness and concern towards others and be kind, understanding, patient and sweet.
In Sahaja Yoga we have a collective Gurudom and we have to assume our powers and correct our self-esteem. With all this knowledge we have to become humble, to bow down like a tree laden with fruits. And this humility will give us that special edge which can penetrate into any heart. Thus we become apostles of truth, and the real faith that God Almighty becomes one with us.
Once the faith in God Almighty becomes absolute and once we know we are his messengers - then we are in the Gurupada.
